Beauty Spy: Fun and fresh Alana W.



Check out how our GL chica lipgloss;) from Darien, IL works some fun color into her routine. If you’re looking for new basics or a way to spice up your routine, you’ll love what’s in her beauty bag!


Three ways to describe my beauty style: Fresh-faced and simple, Love to switch it up, and Total beauty babe—love giving advice to my besties

I wear makeup… Most of the time, but it's okay to skip some days!

My best beauty tip: Wash your face every morning and night! It's the best way to avoid breakouts. Also, it really helps to remove makeup.


Fave lip product: Revlon Color Stay Ultimate Suede in Socialite 

Why I love it: It really does live up to the name ColorStay! I will put it on at 7 in the morning, and it's still on when I go to bed.

Fave eye product: Essence Kaja Pencil in Love me Lavender 

Why I love it: The pencil is super pigmented, so I don't have to keep going over it like I have to with most liners. It just glides on and I'm done. Easy.
